Read "Glen Campbell: 1936-2017" reviewed by C. Michael Bailey

“Well, that moment has come that we have known was an inevitable certainty and yet stings like a sudden catastrophe. Let the world note that a great American influence on pop music, the American Beatle, the secret link between so many artists and records that we can only marvel, has passed and cannot be replaced -my ...

The Guitars Inc: Invitation

The Guitars Inc: Invitation

Last week, when I posted on Tommy Tedesco's 1965 album, The Guitars of Tom Tedesco, I included a print ad I had found for Magnatone amps from 1958. The ad featured five guitarists in a recording studio—Al Hendrickson, Howard Roberts, Bill Pitman, Bob Gibbons and Tommy Tedesco. All five appear on the Four Freshmen and Five ...

Tommy Tedesco: Studio Monster

Tommy Tedesco: Studio Monster

One reason pop rock sounded so good in the 1960s was because many musicians who appeared on the recordings began as studio jazz musicians in Los Angeles in the late 1950s. They were brilliant sight-readers, understood swing and improvisation, and had the ability to play in any style and add their own twists to give the ...

Filmmaker Denny Tedesco

Read "Filmmaker Denny Tedesco" reviewed by Alan Bryson

Although the '60s and '70s are considered by many to be a golden era in music, for decades the people who played the instruments on many of the most popular and iconic recordings of that era were essentially unknown. Fortunately, over the last couple of decades that has begun to change. Several excellent music documentary films ...

Quincy Jones: An Evening With A Legend

Read "Quincy Jones: An Evening With A Legend" reviewed by Solomon J. LeFlore

I love jazz! I love everything about it... the improvisation, syncopation, the forceful rhythm, and the fact that it is truly America's original art form. Its unique and innovative use of brass and woodwind instruments and the piano is jazz. And, it is as American as apple pie. Ask 100 different people “What is ...

Don Ellis: Haiku

Read "Haiku" reviewed by John Kelman

One of the more tragic casualties of the 1970s was Don Ellis. Emerging from the big bands of Maynard Ferguson, Charlie Barnet, and Ray McKinley, the trumpeter began releasing albums under his own name in the early 1960s, distanced from his mentors' more mainstream big band sound. Beginning in small ensembles with free-thinking players such as ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
